Introducing... a brand new TYKEs summer theater program in the JCC Hart Theater for kids entering grades 7 and up!

August 14 to 25

The Shoemaker and the Elves

This exciting new TYKEs program provides more advanced acting, singing and dancing training to kids entering grades 7 and up who are looking for an enriching indoor (air conditioned!) summer theater program, including a final performance for family and friends. In this wacky musical, five eccentric and endearing elves work their hysterically funny magic to help the penniless shoemaker create specialized footwear for a cast of zany characters including Olympian Zoom Corrigan. The production features excellent male and female comedic roles. In addition to theater work on-stage, we’ll enjoy the JCC’s many amenities, including two indoor pools, outdoor splash pad, InZone, gym and more. Kids must enroll for both weeks.

Guess How Much I Love You

NOVEMBER 18 - 19, 2017

Based on the award-winning classic book from author Sam McBratney and illustrator Anita Jeram.

Little Nutbrown Hare loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. And so it continues with a second story… In I Love My Little Storybook, an eager little bunny lies on the grass and opens his book, and within moments, the story he’s reading comes alive in fascinating detail. From illustrator Anita Jeram comes this endearing celebration of the joy of reading, narrated by Beau Bridges.

A Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia production.
